DC Artist Gail Shaw-Clemons’ mastery of the rainbow roll technique is on full display in this vibrant exhibition of her monotype sculptural prints. Her work challenges the eye to see color not experienced before. Nearly 50 of these vivid works comprise the exhibition, dominant in the series are sculptural assemblages that twist paper and color into even more high-contrast rainbows.This body of work began at Pyramid Atlantic when it first opened from the Covid 19 shutdown. Working with color became a healing and rejuvenating process for the artist, presenting a needed distraction from Covid and the turmoil of racial and political unrest.
“This series represents the fact that beauty can be created in response to—and in spite of—trauma, disappointment, fear, and bewilderment…Rainbows are a sign of hope, new beginnings, and transformation.” —GAIL SHAW-CLEMONS
